Adding Adventure

Well here it is. Why is it that we stand in one place and then wonder why we are not moving forward? I believe I have done that with my whole life! I have never liked change and therefore adhere to status quo. For example, I have been in a 15 year relationship…no marriage, no kids. I suppose the cliche is true, you get faced with an illness and want to change your life. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, just want more. I mean don’t we all?  So I needed an ENTERVENTION, need to let adventure enter!
I think it all started when I was watching Pan Am (don’t laugh!). It seems silly, I know. But I was so drawn to the sense of adventure. It occurred to me, why can’t I have adventure in my life? I can, we all can! We just have to actually do something. The problem is, what is that something?
I decided it would be best to write about it, that’s adventurous, right? Ha, not exactly. But if I write about it, then I will be held more accountable. I cant just keep saying I am going to do things, I will have to actually do it! It will be in print, in black and white.
So granted I am sitting on my recliner with my laptop in my lap, which clearly screams adventure 🙂 but we all have to start somewhere. So first order of business is figuring out how to add adventure into my life one day at a time. Let’s keep in mind, funds are limited. I mean this is NOT an Eat, Pray Love story where I can just drop everything and fly to exotic locations in search of myself (don’t we all wish!). I just need to do more, see more, feel more. My mother passed away suddenly a year ago, my sister had brain surgery 2 years ago, I just had surgery for skin cancer a few weeks ago (which justifies the recliner given that im 36 and not 86)….so I am taking a deep breath and starting my new adventurous life. I am open to suggestions, please! And I am not looking to get crazy drastic, like bungee jumping and skydiving. I want to live life not risk it 🙂  The key is to add things to my life that make it more interesting, more fun, more full of…well, life!  I don’t want to change it completely just add seasoning, one pinch at a time.
At least i took one step in starting the blog, I have been meaning to do that for some time, its a step, albeit a small one.  Can I say that is my adventure for today?  Is that lame? Well it will have to be.  Maybe tomorrow I will blog dressed instead of in my sweats, what? baby steps I said!  See you tomorrow….

  1. I am in the same boat and have been for “a few years”, so your hitting earlier than i did and expressing, good for you! I think this is a great idea! I myself am searching around for that “click”, or “switch” or “a ha” moment to go in this or that direction. Call it soul searching, life searching whatever you want, but go for it and don’t stop. Find life, meaning, adventure and live! Dont just be, but breathe, feel, see and live!

  2. I think this is a great idea. I have added you to my favorites page, and plan to follow your blog. I have read one post so far, but I can’t wait to read more. Tramp 🙂
